Trump signs Interdict Act

Trump signs Interdict Act Trump signs Interdict Act

Over the past six years, drug overdose deaths have become the most common cause of violent death in the United States, over and above road traffic accidents or weapons. 'Nobody has ever seen anything like this'. According to an analysis by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention "opioids-prescription and illicit-are the main driver of drug overdose deaths". "The INTERDICT Act will help us fight back against the growing drug crisis by enhancing our enforcement efforts and ensuring law enforcement professionals have the tools and resources they need to keep unsafe drugs out of our country".

On Wednesday evening, President Donald Trump signed bipartisan legislation that will appropriate funds to buy machines that identify packages containing fentanyl, an opioid up to 100 times more powerful than morphine that is driving the overdose epidemic.

"I support this bipartisan effort to combat the opioid abuse epidemic through increased border security efforts", said King. "According to the State Department, Mexico is among the leading suppliers of fentanyl, synthetic opioids, and heroin to the United States".

"We used to have the 'Age of Aquarius.' Everyone thought that was a big drug age". That was nothing compared to this, ' he said, citing a nickname for the 1960s that is perhaps best associated with a song from the musical 'Hair'. Drugs are entering our country across our borders and even through our own postal system.

Trump suggested during his remarks that he'd like to take a more aggressive approach to the drug crisis - but the country's not ready for what he has in mind.

"So we're going to sign this". And it's a step.

"And we're going to find the answer". There is an answer. Does anybody know what I mean?
